Pakistan's national cricket team in England celebrated Eid al-Adha, also called the festival of sacrifice, on Friday and photos of the gathering were shared by the PCB. (More Cricket News)

But none of the players or staff were seen wearing masks or maintaining distance as seen in the photos. Probably, the touring party was given exemption as they are in a biosecure 'bubble' environment and they all have tested negative for COVID-19.

But fans have their questions:

The three-Test series between England and Pakistan begins in a bio-secure environment at Manchester with the opening Test on August 5.

Pakistan drew their 2016 Test series 2-2 and 1-1 in 2018. Following the Test series, Pakistan will play three T20Is at Old Trafford starting August 28.

Elsewhere, small groups of pilgrims performed one of the final rites of the Islamic hajj on Friday as Muslims worldwide marked the start of the Eid al-Adha holiday amid a global pandemic that has impacted nearly every aspect of this year's pilgrimage and celebrations.

The last days of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia coincide with the four-day Eid al-Adha, or “Feast of Sacrifice,” in which Muslims slaughter livestock and distribute the meat to the poor.

The pandemic has pushed millions of people around the world closer to the brink of poverty, making it harder for many to fulfill the religious tradition of purchasing livestock.
